Our ocean view vacation home is located on the Garden Island of Kauai on the sunny south shore. The beauty of Poipu awaits you at our Hawaiian plantation-style home located right next to Brennecke's Beach (world famous for body surfing) and Poipu Beach Park. Many have said that this is the prettiest house in Poipu. Don't let the low price fool - we just haven't raised our price as much as others - its easily worth $50 to $100 more/night! We're much closer to the beach than any of the rooms at the Grand Hyatt and the beach is much better (with a lifeguard and a beach where you can actually swim!)
Get lulled to sleep by the peaceful sound of waves breaking on the shore at Brennecke's. Check the surf at Left-lefts and Waiohai from the lanai. We are NOT a few minutes drive to the beach we are AT THE BEACH. It is a 45-second walk from your door step until you are swimming in the ocean at Brennecke's Beach located at the east end of Poipu Beach park. Poipu Beach has the only lifeguard on the south shore. It has very protected areas for swimming, snorkeling, body surfing, and boogie boarding with great surfing on the outside reef. Even though sunny Poipu Beach is the most popular beach on island, you have it all to yourself in the mornings - everyone else has to drive here, you see!
The studio is a darling hideaway-great for everyone-but especially nice for newly-weds. Honeymoons and Hawaii are synonymous, you know! Champagne will greet all honeymooners! Any milestone 10th, 25th, 50th anniversaries will also get the royal treatment-just let us know in advance.
We have had many honeymooners stay with us who return year after year. It is such a great spot-close to everything, but still private and quiet.
The Bungalow is a private studio with small kitchenette (microwave, large toaster oven and refrigerator with separate freezer that keeps ice cream at just the right temperature, sink, plus outdoor gas BBQ with side burner), small dining and living area, and private lanai and of course a private bathroom. There is an outdoor shower with hot water for after the beach rinseoffs, in addition to the private bath inside with a porcelain bathtub/shower.
The Bungalow is on the first floor of our home, below our bedroom. We wrapped it up (ceiling and walls) with soundboard so we would not hear any noise, and vice versa, and it worked great! You honestly feel like you are in your own separate place. It's very private, yet we are close if you have questions.
We sit one lot back from the ocean. There is a two-lane road which runs along the shoreline. It is only a service road to the houses in this area so there is not a lot of traffic as it is not a thoroughfare. There are no houses on the ocean side of the road. There is a fairly good ocean view directly in front of the Bungalow as there is a large opening between the two one-story homes in front of us. You have a partial ocean view through the beautifully fragrant plumeria tree in our yard as well as across the rolling green lawn of the empty lot between us and the neighboring home on the west side of our home. We are on a flag lot, so we are far enough away from the road that you get no traffic noise-nothing but the sound of birds, palm trees rustling in the tradewinds and the surf breaking on the shore! It is really pretty great!
If you are a strong swimmer, the snorkeling right out in front is fabulous-lots of turtles and even dolphin on occasion! If you walk along the ocean a short ways to Poipu Beach Park just to the right of the lifeguard station, there is great snorkeling and swimming area in a lagoon which is protected by an outside reef for less confident swimmers. There is also a couple good surfing areas on the outside of that reef (Waiohai and Left-Lefts) and body and boogie boarding at Brennecke’s Beach (not for novices!).
Our home is located within the visitors destination area for this island:
Minimum stay is seven nights, however if there is a gap in my schedule I will accept shorter stays with a 4 day minimum. You'll need to make an inquiry because with a 7 day minimum set, you can't reserve through VRBO without an override from me. VRBO is working on changing this!

About Debra Trenton
I have lived on Kauai on this block for over twenty six years! I firmly believe its the best location on the entire island. We get to swim with dolphins right out in front of our house!!! I love Hanalei, but I am so much happier living in Poipu - its the ideal location if you are a sun lover - tropical, but with maximum sunny days. Its also central as it is about half way between the end of the road in either direction (only about an hour each way), so you can see everything or if its raining in those other places (as it often is), you can just enjoy a day on the beach here!!
Debra Trenton purchased this House in 1997
Why Debra Trenton chose Poipu
Its ideal for couples! Romantic, private, custom finishes and the best location on Kauai right across from Brenneckes Beach!
What makes this House unique
We built our home with quality materials to last forever because we never want to leave here. We included the Bungalow because this is the kind of place we like to stay when we travel and we wanted to share this great location with others. We love meeting new people from around the world!

Perfect honeymoon location!
My husband and I had the most wonderful time staying at Deb and Jim's. Such a perfect honeymoon spot! This rental is amazingly well appointed, private, so thoughtful, with everything you could possibly need for a lovely vacation. The location is awesome, we walked to the beach almost daily and there's amazing swimming, decent snorkeling, lots of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. In addition being on the south shore was actually pretty convenient for exploring other parts of the island. You get access to lots of fun equipment-- really nice surfboards, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach gear. Loved and appreciated Deb supplying coffee and breakfast goodies (as well as champagne to toast our honeymoon; so sweet). We loved our stay and are already trying to scheme how we can return for an anniversary! Thanks so so much.
Couldn't have been more perfect! Bungalow was clean, private, with plenty of room in living space & bathroom. Beautiful yard. Perfect distance to ocean & beach. Debra and Jim could not be friendlier or more helpful. We had the most relaxing stay at this gem!!

Perfect Iin every way.
The Brenneke Beach house was everything we could have wished for in a vacation location. We had planned to tour more of the island but found ourselves so content we could not pull ourselves away from what was available out our front door. Sea turtles. Monk seals, snorkeling, walking paths and a lovely laniai surrounded by flowering trees and shrubs.
Debra and Jim have done an amazing job in maintaining this home and have anticipated what one needs in a vacation rental.
We both felt that one week is not enough. This was a heavenly vacation.
Why would you stay anywhere else?
We loved staying at Brenneckes Beach Bungalow. We have never stayed where it was as well equipped as our home. If we had need for anything or had any questions, all we had to do was ask Debbie. The studio is beautifully furnished and arranged. The lovely back yard made it so enjoyable to sit on the lanai morning and evening and in between. We played board games (provided by Debbie and Jim) on the lanai by candlelight. We fell asleep with the sound of the ocean sending us into dreamland. We ended up buying vanilla soy milk when we got home because Debbie and Jim provided it for our breakfasts and we had never had it before. We even bought the granola that they also provided so we could eat that at home---extending our great memories of Kauai but mostly of the great studio we called "home" for a week.
Great Property, Great Location!
My wife and I truly enjoyed our two-week stay at the bungalow. The bungalow had everything we needed to have a complete home away from home. It had a small but complete kitchenette, a very comfortable bed, nice bathroom and a private lanai with a view. The fact that it was located at ground level, made it easy to leave and enter, even with groceries. Debra and Jim, the owners, were very helpful and friendly people and they made us feel welcome. We bonded with their dog, Wilbur and cat, Erica.
The location is perfect. Really close to everything in Poipu and easy to reach anything in Lihue. We will not hesitate to recommend this wonderful place to anyone.
Great location in peaceful surroundings and so close to the ocean. Debra was a wonderful hostess and provided lots of "extra touches" to bungalow to make it quite comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
